Costco members have been seeing many items at their favorite warehouse creep up in price lately.
While they may have thought the food court was untouchable to inflation, both the beloved chicken bake and 20-ounce Pepsi have seen the cost on their tags bump up.
Unfortunately, these aren't going to be the last Costco products to get hit with a price hike.
For those that may be getting married soon or those that just prefer the old-fashioned method of sending a note, this latest cost increase might hit harder.
That's because the price of Forever Stamps just raised from $0.58 to $0.60 per stamp in the U.S. and Costco members will notice this in the warehouse and online soon.
The increase in price was approved by the Postal Service and went into effect across the U.S on July 10, due to a 6.5% inflation rate.
Costco sells five booklets of 100 USPS First-Class Forever Stamps for $57.75 and will honour the old member pricing through August 28.
Currently, the Forever Stamps are labeled as sold out online. However, they may be available in-store at select locations for the pre-price hike cost.
Forever Stamps never lose their worth, thus it doesn't matter when you buy them. First produced in 2007 for $0.41, their price has progressively risen.
The member-favorite chicken bake jumped from $2.99 to $3.99. Kirkland croissants and muffins were each hiked by $1.
Inflation has affected numerous items. Water, bacon, and beef have pushed up Costco grocery bills.
